    Then you could use the complimentary services of our partners: SCORE and SBDC of New York.


  • Did you know there is free business counseling available in our region? Through SCORE, you can meet with a volunteer small business mentor who can guide you through any stage of your business. SCORE is a network of mentors that can help you start, grow, or transition your business.

    Mentoring works! Small business owners who receive three or more hours of mentoring report higher revenues and increased growth.
